Albert is a PhD student based at the Imperial College Centre for Synthetic Biology. His project is funded by an EPSRC/Faculty of Engineering DTP scholarship (Transition to a Sustainable Zero-Pollution Society) and by the Department of Bioengineering.
In his project, Albert will take an innovative approach to bridge the existing gap between the performance of nitrogen-fixing inoculants under laboratory and real field conditions. The project is supervised by Professor Guy-Bart Stan.
Albert's research is aligned to the Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet DTP run by the Grantham Institute.
Albert holds a first class degree in Biotechnology from the University of Barcelona (Spain). He joined Imperial as an MRes student in Systems and Synthetic Biology in 2016, and then went on to do a two-year stint as a Research Assistant in the Department of Bioengineering (2017-19) before embarking on doctoral research.
